My Favorite Quote-   "When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hold on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn." -Harriet Beecher Stowe

I started running in May of 2006 while losing 85 lbs after my youngest was born.  I have 6 fantastic kids, 3 girls and 3 boys and a wonderful husband.  My oldest is in college and my baby is in pre-school. (Six kids in 5 schools ;)

Last night when I foam rolled the ITB there was no pain at all :)  I have been doing it everyother night and that seems to be working well :)

Tomorrow I will run 2 miles, and if that goes well, I will repeat the 2 miles a day all week long, while continuing the stretching (morning and night) and rolling (every other evening).  If this week is Okee Dokee- then next week I will run 3 miles every day.  Four the next.  Here's hoping all will go well :)

Happy Sunday to y'all.  I am off to check out yesterdays race reports :)

It felt SO great to run this morning :)  I woke up at 5:30 all ready to go :)  The knee did GREAT until the last .1 of a mile.  It just squawked a bit, not much.  I stretched and rolled and am icing the knee right now. 

Where do y'all ice your ITB?  At the knee, or where the ITB is painful when you roll it???

Two cute really slow miles.  There was a twinge at .76m and then again just before home.  I slowed the pace down at .76 just to be sure.  The camber of the road when I run with the traffic seems to be a problem for my ITB.  (ITB leg lower than other well behaved leg).  I will go to the track tomorrow.  That should be fun being the first day of SCHOOL!  I HATE school!  I love the summer and I am going to be thrown into a funk of sadness until March.  Woe is me.... on a strange, but related note, I will be all alone two mornings a week as little Will is starting preschool in a few weeks and Mac is starting Kindergarten.  I have not been alone since 1992 ;)  Anna is taking the ACT next week and starting to apply to colleges.  I am having a really hard time NOT pushing BYU.  We were there last week and had such a GREAT time.  I know she'll have fun no matter where she goes, but I'd love to have here there.... anyway....

My friend called me at 9 pm last night and a bunch of us went to see The Time Traveler's Wife.  It was a bit strange, but I liked it.  Hey- any movie where Eric Bana time travels NAKED can't be all bad ;)

Nice run this morning.  I could not get up AT ALL!  I felt drugged.  I missed my girls leaving for their first day and only saw the boys off because they were running around like crazy people SCREAMING!! 

NO PAIN for my run.  There was a bit of a twinge when I tried to run faster, so I stopped that :)  This injury is healing so strangely.  I am noticing some weird things.  There must have been some adhesions along my quads and ITB.  It seems that as I get one area all healed and loose, it just moves to another place.  That foam roller is really becoming my best friend.  I just hope I can handle all of these boring stinky flat routes while everyone is getting all better :)

I met Michelle at the Spanish Fork Reservoir at 6:30 this morning. It was SO cold!!! I wimped out and just walked in the water and talked to Michelle while she ran with her belt. It was SO fun to chat and disturb the fishermen ;) They were probably thinking, "I come out here so early to get AWAY from chatty women!" Anyway- it was super fun and I am still COLD, even after my run.

The run felt fine except that I have two emergency potty stops :( I called it quits after my second one at a local elementary school. I didn't want to chance an accident :p

Have a GREAT day!

Hola!  These two little miles are going to really spoil me :)  I am loving just being gone for a little bit :)  No pain at all today :)  I am pretty excited to try three miles next week :)  OH and I did 7 MAN push ups in a row last night with 5 more in the next two sets :D (thirty something all together with the girls in there)
